POSTDOC: School of History, Technology, and Society at Georgia Tech
Postdoc in Sports Studies
The School of History, Technology, and Society at Georgia Tech (HTS) seeks a postdoctoral fellow
in sports studies beginning in fall 2012.
HTS is a collective of sociologists and historians offering a full range of undergraduate and
graduate degrees. In 2013 HTS will inaugurate an interdisciplinary program bringing together
sports studies, science and technology, and urban studies and incorporating faculty from areas
such as architecture, biomedicine, engineering, history, information design, international affairs,
literature, physiology, psychology, sociology, and urban planning.
The postdoctoral fellow will help to shape this new program by using fall 2012 to develop
an “Introduction to Sports Studies” course which s/he will teach in spring 2013 along with one
additional course to be negotiated. We will consider candidates from a variety of disciplinary
backgrounds. This is a one-year postdoctoral position, renewable for an additional year at the
discretion of the HTS chair.
Applicants for this position should email all materials, including a cover letter, current CV, and
contact information for three references to Professor John Tone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is July 15, 2012. Please include the words “Sports Studies Postdoc”
in the subject line. Salary will be competitive and will include fringe benefits.
